Fair Game is based on the actual events of a CIA Agents whose cover was blown to hell by greedy politicians and government officials.

Valerie’s husband, diplomat Joe Wilson (Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger but when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war everyone’s career and life is compromised.
Plame left the organization in 2005, and she and her husband filed a civil suit against former Vice-President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Lewis “Scooter” Libby, after she was removed from the agency.
